Notes 
 After six straight seasons of scoring averages in the 20's, Lilliard finally cracked the 30-point average with exactly 30.0 on the season, good for third-highest in the league. At 30 years old, Lilliard is in his prime and should see similar success this year. He also averaged 8.0 assists per game in 2019-2020, 1.1 more than his previous career-high. Lilliard has entered superstar status and should provide top-10 returns in fantasy leagues this season.
Dave Kluge - FantasyPros
The biggest risk when drafting Kawhi Leonard is his load management. Without suffering any major injuries, Leonard suited up for just 57 games last year. When he plays, you're getting a player that'll churn out top-10 scoring performances almost every night as well as top-five value in steals. In addition, his 7.1 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game were good for 33rd and 36th in the league, respectively. He deserves to be picked in the first round, but make sure to have someone to plug in for his inevitable healthy scratches.
